PROTON-1792: clean out old proton releases from the dist repo/mirrors, left behind for historic
PyPi usage

> clean out older releases from the dist repo

>                 Key: PROTON-1792
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/PROTON-1792
>             Project: Qpid Proton
>          Issue Type: Task
>          Components: release
>            Reporter: Robbie Gemmell
>            Assignee: Robbie Gemmell
>            Priority: Major
> The Python bindings for proton-c are published at PyPi, and in order to allow a seemless
install there, a system was added such that if the relevant proton-c version couldn't be located
on the system already then the setup
> would implicitly compile and install a local version for use.
> Unfortunately, when this functionality was added in earlier releases, around 0.9, reference
was made to apache.org/dist/qpid/proton/ to download the matching release archive for installation.
> The 0.15.0 package at PyPi instead got the files via the GitHub mirror for the source
repo, and so wasn't affected.
> The issue was addressed in proton-0.16.0 via PROTON-1330, to distribute the needed proton-c
files within the generated python binding source bundle.
> As a result of the issue older releases have been left at apache.org/dist/qpid/proton/
longer than they should, and also on the mirrors as a side effect of this, to avoid breaking
things for actually relying on the bindings implicit proton-c install functionality.
> Now that significant time has passed since a release was last affected by the issue,
and from chatting with [~kgiusti] and [~jross@redhat.com] we aren't aware of significant remaining
usage of these older versions by other projects, it seems a reasonable time to now clear them
> Anyone affected can still use the older python binding versions by grabbing the appropriate
proton release from the [archives|https://archive.apache.org/dist/qpid/proton/] and installing
from source, if there is a reason they cant simply upgrade to a newer version.
